Nick Stahl, Terminator 3 Actor, Placed on Involuntary Psychiatric Hold: Report
Nick Stahl's troubles are far from over. The Terminator 3 star, who made headlines all throughout last year after going missing in June, checking into rehab, and then running away again, is now reportedly in a psychiatric hospital.
According to TMZ, a pal took the troubled actor to an L.A. hospital around 3:30 a.m. early Tuesday, June 18, and later, Stahl was placed on a 5150 (or involuntary) hold shortly afterward.
Further details about the circumstances surrounding the drastic hold have not yet been released.
Earlier this month, the 33-year-old actor seemed to be in higher spirits following a lifelong struggle with drugs, alcohol and personal issues, even feeling well enough to dole out advice to former teen star Amanda Bynes.
"She'll figure it out. She's young," Stahl told TMZ at the time, adding that the Easy A star just needed to stop oversharing and picking fights on Twitter.
Stahl's wife, Rose Murphy, was the first to initially call attention to Stahl's problems. In May 2012, after Stahl went missing, she filed a missing persons report, only to hear back from him several days later that he had checked himself into rehab.
Just one month later, however, the actor left the treatment a second time (against the doctors' orders) and disappeared again, this time resurfacing last July.
In December, Stahl was arrested at a Hollywood porn shop for "touching himself" in a private booth, an incident that he called a "misunderstanding."
